Playing at the World Cup is something that I am really hungry for.
Not every single minute of your career will go well, individually and collectively, and not every season will go how you want it to, but it's how you react to that.
I realise that sometimes things go well and sometimes they don't. But it is very important for me I feel personally, even selfishly, the need to be playing football matches.
It has always been in my make up to play a high percentage of games.
You get people criticising people who are happy to sit on the bench, picking up money.
I don't want to be stale.
This is what playing football is all about - trying to reach finals and trying to lift trophies.
I'm my worst critic when I'm playing.
